Applying for a job

Someone’s looking for a new home. You can read two more wholesome pages on Patreon (and support this comic and my early retirement at the same time!).

It’s late (because I kind of forgot to post the page and now I gotta go sleep) so I’ll be brief. Not much going on here, apart from the fact that I have successfully completed Nanowrimo! For those who don’t know, it’s a writing event that happens every November, and the challenge is to write 50k words in a month. I made it, and the draft of the next book is almost completed. But I’m not sure if I’ll be polishing this one once I’m done with it (still need to write the ending) or start something else. I figured it might do me good to practice my storytelling more than my editing so I might want to vomit out another book before I pick something to edit. We’ll see. It might be that I won’t be super creative in December since I’m spending half of it with my family. Also, this chapter of Replay is almost done, so I’ll need to sketch out the next one.

I’m still reading the same books (and enjoying both) so if you haven’t tried The Mask of Mirrors or The Bone Shard Daughter then I think I can recommend both. I somehow managed to read a lot of crappy books this year and those two have been a delight. I’m glad I can still enjoy a good fantasy story, I was losing hope.

Enjoy the two lovebirds and I’ll see you guys next week!

    Hearty laughter, forge a bond,
    who knows, it just might last.
    This youthful smile, you’re far too fond,
    but then, you’d best move fast.

    For now one thing alone is sure,
    that death will find you all.
    No way around, no help, no cure,
    in time we all must fall.

    So take her in, take all you can,
    enjoy her company.
    But do not think, that you’re her man,
    or else she just might flee.

    Be happy that she wants to spend,
    some time to help you out.
    Her skills are hers alone to lend,
    and smile, if she snores loud.

    For this is what you dreamed of, right?
    Attention, closeness, more?
    For her you faced the demon blight,
    for her, you went to war.

    Well then, old man, your answer please,
    this offer won’t stay long.
    This chance is yours alone to seize,
    be wise or she’ll be gone.

    And mind your manners, if you would,
    this does not mean a thing.
    She just broke up, act as you should,
    no need to get a ring.

    Two square meters? Is she asking for fabric? At least she’s not using Imperial units. πŸ˜‰

      I suspect she’s asking for a place to sleep.
      She was sharing a tent with Filip, after all, but now they’re broken up.

      I think he can negotiate her down. She’s not that big; she doesn’t need a full two square meters.

    It’s good to see Nina laugh and smile again. Her problems aren’t solved, not even close, but some happiness will help her cope.

    2 mΒ² per sketch? Watch it, Stefen, she’ll have you moved out in no time. πŸ˜€

      Are they though? As it stands, Nina is still recovering from breaking up with Filip and ‘Rebound relationships’ are rarely healthy or long-lived.

      But then again, in their world, nothing (and nobody) is particularly ‘long-lived’ anyway…

        If NI says “Enjoy the two lovebirds and I’ll see you guys next week!” then the voice of god has declared them love birds. πŸ™‚
